New U.S. Navy Warship Frozen in Ice in Montreal Until Spring Thaw

The US Navy’s newest littoral combat ship, the USS Little Rock, is stuck in ice caused by global warming.

The USS Little Lock (LCS-9), a brand new U.S. Navy warship that has been stuck in Montreal for weeks due to icy weather, will spend the rest of the winter in Canada.

The littoral combat ship, which was commissioned in Buffalo, New York on Dec. 16, was beginning its maiden journey to its home port in Jacksonville, Florida, when on Christmas Eve, it could not move through the ice in the St. Lawrence Seaway.

The St. Lawrence Seaway connects the Great Lakes to the Atlantic Ocean and flows through Montreal.

SCOTUS will decide if Feds abused their powers choosing a frog’s habitat

The U.S. Supreme Court will hear a Louisiana family’s case against the federal government’s decision to designate their land as critical habitat for an endangered frog species that hasn’t lived there for decades.

Justices will decide if the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service erred in designating 1,500 acres of private land in St. Tammany Parish as critical habitat for the endangered dusky gopher frog. The high court, however, declined to hear a case on the bearded seal.

Even Lawyers Supporting Climate Lawsuits Are Skeptical About Their Success

One of the attorneys responsible for targeting oil companies’ climate records is skeptical about the prospects of winning lawsuits against Exxon Mobil and other companies over global warming.

New York City and other coastal cities will have a difficult time suing oil producers for contributing to global warming, Michael Burger, who heads the Sabin Center for Climate Change Law at Columbia University, told Axios Monday.

RIP John Coleman—Weather Channel Co-Founder Who Called Climate Change ‘Baloney’

John Coleman’s Weather Channel days.

John Coleman, the cheerful, politically incorrect and fearless co-founder of the Weather Channel, has died at 83, surrounded by family at his Las Vegas home.

The bad news is that he lived long enough to see his creation turn into yet another propaganda arm of the Climate Industrial Complex churning out #fakenews stories like this one.

The good news is that he just didn’t give a damn.

Consensus Fail: Vast New Geothermal Climate Impacts Ignored

Independent scientists argue energy at the Earth’s interior is a fundamental—and often overlooked—driver of climate change and oceanic temperatures. 

The massive increase in the number of underwater volcanoes detected in the last 26 years, creating many new islands around the globe, undermines the pseudoscience of man-made global warming.

Moreover, a rise in extraterrestrial energy at the earth’s interior also explains an increase in earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.

Australia Closes Coal-Fired Power Plants: Hospitals Forced to Cut Power Use & Power Prices Rocket

This is what Aussie hospitals are facing.

Australia’s ‘inevitable transition’ to nature’s ‘wonder fuels’, the wind and sun are looking more like a transition to the Third World.

Rocketing power prices have seen tens of thousands of Australian families cut from the grid, no longer able to afford power at all.

And power ‘rationing’ of the kind one might expect in North Korea, Cuba or the USSR of old has beset a country which once enjoyed the cheapest power on earth; thanks to the winning combination of abundant reserves of coal and gas and politicians with their feet on the ground rather than their heads in the clouds.

Madness and misinformation in renewables-land: South Australia

Hope foreign readers are enjoying the spectacle of a first world nation destroying its competitive advantage with renewables. Hope that helps you avoid the same fate.

Praise the lord, states without coal don’t have to load-shed-industry (because they don’t have much left):

The South Australian Treasurer is bragging that SA didn’t have to shed any industry load on Friday, but the coal state of Victoria did. Pull the other one:

German Public Television Uses Every Trick in Propaganda Hit On German Climate ‘Deniers’

Another winter North Sea storm struck Germany last Thursday, and naturally the alarmists and climate-downfall conspiracy nuts – among them flagship German public television – immediately mobilized to point the blame at man-made CO2 emissions.

Three Reasons Trump Should Pull the Plug on Solar Tariffs

An expansive trade case has simmered on the back burner since April 2017 and is now finally on its way to President Donald Trump’s desk for a decision by Jan. 26.

The case involves two failing manufacturing companies—Suniva and SolarWorld—which have petitioned the government for globally applicable tariffs on inexpensive imports of solar cells and panels.

That petition has run the gantlet of comments, hearings, and analysis from the U.S. International Trade Commission.

Heat from Earth’s interior triggers ice sheet slide towards sea

Greenland’s ice sheet is becoming smaller and smaller. The melting taking place is at an increased strength and speed that no models have previously predicted.

Today, in the esteemed journal Scientific Reports, researchers from the Arctic Research Centre, Aarhus University, and the Greenland Institute of Natural Resources present results that, for the first time, show that the deep bottom water of the north-eastern Greenland fjords is being warmed up by gradually lost from the Earth’s interior.

Five Ways to Torment The Greens

Senator Di Natale’s recent call for Australia Day to be moved from January 26 reveals that he and many of his fellow Greens have seemingly few major issues to occupy their intermittently febrile minds.

Clearly, they need more topics to fret about, which they will enjoy for the virtue-signaling potential while cheering the sane rest of us by saddling them with so many concerns their monomaniacal minds won’t know how or where to begin.

Fake Climate Scientists Use Fake Science To Make Fake Climate Models

Heidi Cullen’s Climate Central claims that using climate models they can predict how many hot days per year US cities will have 82 years in the future and that we can control the frequency of hot weather with “our choices.”

More Hot Days Are Coming With Climate Change. Our Choices Will Decide How Many

Climate Central has developed a new web-interactive tool that brings the reality of future heat to hometowns across the U.S.  Simply enter the name of your city, town or hamlet — or any place in the Lower 48 that piques your curiosity — to see how the number of days above summer temperature thresholds will change throughout the rest of the century. The interactive also shows how reducing greenhouse gas emissions can help reduce the heat.
